Drefach Velindre, Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthenshire


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A country smallholding with approximately 5 acres of land and superb views, set in a secluded rural location at the end of a long shared track. The traditional detached farmhouse requires complete restoration and is currently unsafe to live in, there is a large old stone cow shed providing exciting potential for conversion (subject to planning) and there are further sheds/barns offering good storage for general use. There is a large yard for parking and 2 static caravans. Opportunities like this are rare, so we advise those buyers seeking a lifestyle in the country who are not afraid of a lot of work to come and look without fail. Viewing is strictly by appointment only due to the unsafe condition. EPC - Exempt


The property is situated in a rural location down a long shared track, near the village of Drefach Felindre which provides a good basic range of local amenities.
